DIMO to introduce the latest range of Mercedes-Benz Trucks and Vans

February 21, 2012

Mercedes-Benz Trucks


For over 120 years the name Mercedes-Benz has guaranteed trucks of highest quality. In the European and Latin American markets Mercedes-Benz Trucks today is still synonymous with reliability and economy, first-rate quality in product and service as well as global competency in customer-focused transport solutions.

This applies to the Actros, Axor and Atego truck lines and to the special-purpose vehicles from Mercedes-Benz Trucks. The Mercedes-Benz Econic is known as the specialist for municipal, collection and short-range distribution services and the and the universal working machine Unimog for applications in the municipal sector and the power-supply and construction industries, in road-rail service and for fighting forest fires. The new off-road truck for operation in the most difficult terrain, the Mercedes-Benz Zetros, rounds off the range.

Mercedes-Benz trucks traditionally have been trailblazers in the area of safety. The Safety Truck, a Mercedes-Benz Actros, combines all currently available assistance and safety systems. With Active Brake Assist the Safety Truck autonomously initiates emergency braking if a collision with a vehicle traveling ahead appears unavoidable. Other assistance systems like the Lane Assistant, roll control and proximity control complete the safety package in the Actros. In the opinion of the experts, the Safety Truck from Mercedes-Benz is the safest truck in the world at present – and Mercedes-Benz is the only brand offering trucks with a system like the Active Brake Assist.

Mercedes-Benz Trucks also is well-positioned where environmental protection is concerned: diesel engines from Daimler have become efficient, low-emission high-tech power plants through continuous development. The brand with the star is a trustworthy partner to customers and business partners. With “Trucks you can trust” Mercedes-Benz Trucks stands for highest quality and reliability, especially when it comes to long haulage and heavy haulage.

Mercedes-Benz Vans

The product range of Mercedes-Benz Vans includes privately and commercially used vans, MPVs and camper vans. The Vito, Viano and Sprinter models convince the world market with innovative safety technology, a vast range of variants, and drive systems that provide for optimum fuel consumption. Here Mercedes-Benz Vans takes advantage of the outstanding successes of Mercedes-Benz Research and Development in the areas of safety and comprehensive optimization of consumption. In particular, the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter impresses with variability, safety and environmental protection: three wheelbases, as many as four lengths and three roof variants are available for the Sprinter. The new-generation diesel engines with further enhanced fuel economy meet the Euro 5 standard and optionally comply with the stringent European EEV emission standard.

Customers need not only powerful vehicles, but partners who think and act with the same professionalism as they do. An individual customer focus is all-important because every customer is different. And yet one thing applies equally to all: Mercedes-Benz Vans provides the best possible solution for everyone. Crucial to the success of the brand is the distinctive variability of the product offering, examples being the needs-adapted selection of variants (body height and length, engines, equipment), the individual options and solutions for every field, and the high ride comfort and ease of operation and loading. DIMO is initially introducing the 21 seater Sprinter which will definitely add star class image and unparallel safety assurance to the booming tourism industry. Outstanding products with high value retention, a consistently high regard for customers and business partners, and top-notch service make Mercedes-Benz Vans the premium brand in the van market segment.

DIMO is the authorized distributor for Mercedes-Benz vehicles in Sri Lanka, with the relationship between Daimler AG and DIMO spanning more than 7 decades. In addition, DIMO will provide you with 24 Road Side Assistance with its renowned after sales services and the Mercedes-Benz warranty for every new purchase.

MEDTRON AG receives enormous feedback at its first fair participation in the Middle East

February 8, 2012

Saarbrücken – For the first time, MEDTRON AG presented its product range of contrast medium injectors and consumables at the Middle East´s largest healthcare congress, Arab Health 2012, which took place from January 23 to 26 in Dubai, UAE. MEDTRON´s exhibition stand was received with great interest – numerous booth visitors have seen the highly reliable and innovative contrast medium injectors for CT (computed tomography) and MRI (magnetic resonance imaging).

Radiologists had the opportunity to try out MEDTRON´s injectors of the Accutron series by simulating contrast medium injections for CT and MRI directly at the booth. The MEDTRON sales team gave recommendations concerning the ideal usage of the corresponding consumables.
Product highlights were the multiple-use tube system, allowing to perform injections of contrast medium and saline solution for 8 hours without any risk of cross-patient contamination. These consumables support an efficient workflow by reducing the examination time and the costs of contrast medium.

The Middle East healthcare market is developing rapidly and has very high demands on technical trends. In Dubai Martin Bartels, chairman of the board of MEDTRON AG, emphasized the importance of the region for his company: “We are prepared to fulfill the growing demand for high-quality injection systems in the Middle East. Our injectors are long-lived and fail-safe. They support radiologists all over the world to perform efficient and safe examinations.”
